-( Story related, cannot be missed )-
When you enter Kusa Village, you'll find that there are no Guardian Saplings to purify it. Amaterasu will quickly lose her godhood and revert to her basic wolf form. Deep within the village, there is a maiden by the name of Princess Fuse who is overwhelmed by the presence of demons. Defeat these and restore the village. Your duty in this village won't be done by then, though.
